Voltage Conditioner Zero-Span Calculator

This calculator gives you information on the zero and span adjustability of transducers with the voltage conditioner electrical output feature. To use this calculator:

  1. Determine which OUTPUT you require according to columns A, B, and C.
  2. Complete the INPUT column variables corresponding to the output you require and press the Calculate button for the column of interest.
  3. Note: "unit displacement" can be inches, mm, °, or other units of displacement.

INPUTS A B C Unit of Measure
transducer's displacement (actual) unit displacement
desired voltage span for transducer's displacement   VDC
transducer's range (max (design))   unit displacement
power supply voltage (min)   VDC

OUTPUTS A B C Unit of Measure
zero control 0 to 100 % of span
max voltage span for transducer's displacement (actual) 0.889     VDC
min voltage span for transducer's displacement (actual) 0.356     VDC
max sensitivity 0.222     V/unit displacement
min sensitivity 0.089     V/unit displacement
max transducer's range (design)       unit displacement
min power supply voltage required       VDC

For the variables shown in column A above, below are examples of the voltage conditioner's output flexibility.
The voltage span can be varied from minimum to maximum or anywhere in between and is user-settable.
single-ended, maximum span 0 to 0.889 VDC
single-ended, minimum span 0 to 0.356 VDC
differential, maximum span -0.444 to 0.444 VDC
differential, minimum span -0.178 to 0.178 VDC
single-ended, zero control at 100% of range -0.889 to 0 VDC
